Welcome to Bishop Larkin Catholic School
Our mission is to inspire our students to be the best that they can be by spreading the word of God through our teachings and actions on a daily basis. We provide a supportive and caring learning environment where each child is encouraged to strive for academic excellence and grow in faith, knowledge and love. The education our students receive here is not an end in itself, it is a means to a greater end--knowing, loving and serving God.

BLCS Class of 2013 Alumni Reunion Reception!

Congratulations to Abby Scharber and Maddie Murch on their Academic Achievement with the Duke Univeristy TIP Program!
Duke University runs the TIPS program which identifies
academically strong 6
grader students. The students identified are invited to take the SAT (College
Entrance Exam) in 7th
grade. Abby Scharber and Maddie Murch
were invited to take the SAT earlier this year because of their exceptionally
high scores on their 6
grade ITBS tests. Both girls scored better
on the SAT than 77% of college-bound high school seniors in the state of
Florida in Mathematics and better than 68% of college-bound seniors nationwide. And, both girls also qualified for the Duke TIP Award in Mathematics and
Reading! Abby and Maddie’s accomplishments
were acknowledged at a special awards ceremony earlier this Spring at the University of
South Florida. We are so proud of these
Congratulations Ben Miller!
What does a Catholic education mean to me?" That was the question posed to the roughly 600 eighth graders across the Diocese as part of the Catholic Foundation Essay Competition sponsored by Saint Leo University.
The Bishop Larkin Family is proud to congratulate Ben Miller for being an Essay Competition award winner this year. Ben's Essay was awarded third place and he received a $1000 Scholarship to Bishop McLaughlin! Ben was honored at an awards mass at our school and also at the Catholic Foundation Celebration on February 6.
The Bishop Larkin Fun Run and Color Run was a success! Many thanks to all our sponsors, parents, teachers and Boosterthon friends for your time, energy, generosity and pledges to help our school. We had lots of fun! Check out the pictures from the run on Shutterfly!
